Acquiring its name from the fruit that Tambun, Ipoh, is famous for, THE POMELO lies within The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. One of the important components of this concept is spa cuisine – light, healthy and nutritious dishes. The POMELO innovatively incorporates the pomelo fruitinto refreshing spa cuisine for an awakening of the senses. THE POMELO’s spa cuisine menu explodes with flavours of organic fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood and premium poultry. No artificial seasoning or flavorings will be used in the cooking or preparation of food but lots of local fresh spices and ingredients are used instead.

The food is great but pricey.

The Pomelo is the restaurant inside the Banjaran Hotsprings. The food is great but pricey. Since you can afford to stay at the Banjaran, why not try it at least once :)

Staying elsewhere in Ipoh over Christmas we reserved a table here for our evening Christmas meal. The menu choice was very appealing, we opted for the set 200RM menu, others in our party for vegetarian options. The food was delicious and well presented, staff were very attentive and polite. After our meal we were taken to see the wine cellar... More

The breakfast selection and staff service was excellent. It will be a poor choice for lunch and dinner, not so great choice of menu which is overpriced and the foods its definitely not my taste. There is good selection of food if you drive out for lunch and dinner, since you are in Ipoh you should go out and try... More

The dining ambience is good even though the restaurant isn't air - conditioned. We are fortunate to receive complimentary side dishes and dessert from the chef and wish to express our appreciation for his effort to make our dinning experience a special one. The staff in this restaurant are attentive, friendly and responsive. Most of the dishes prepared are to... More

Dinner The food was beautifully plated, and dinner was absolutely delicious. The waiters were really attentive and gave us great recommendations for dinner. We were really surprised to receive an amuse bouche and additional dessert with compliments from the chef. I was told that the chef is a local Ipoh boy, which mad us very proud indeed (my spouse is... More

- love the foods and the presentation. - services are great too but just the foods served a bit slow and there's lots of insects company us, according to the staff it's due to season. - we were given a complimentary pudding with chocolates and cookies too after our desserts. - we'll visit again.

So many eloquent reviews... All I can add is Bravo! We have dined in many fine restaurants in many countries and. Cannot remember a more gracious presentation nor a more elegant setting, yes, it is a bit pricy...and well worth it considering the ambience. Sooo delicious, I did wish the portions were not so small, especially the bouillabaisse which differs... More

Setting was nice, food was good but pricey, RM78 for a lamb chop. But with all the break, complimentary entree and dessert plate, you will find that it is all worth it. Only down side is no many varieties on the menu to choose from. Worth a try if you are staying in Banjaran.
